He may not have played for Inter Milan’s first team yet, but 20-year-old Martin Satriano has attracted the interest of a string of Premier League clubs including Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.

Chelsea and Manchester City have previously been linked with the forward, but their interest appears to have cooled, however West Ham and Everton are ready to battle the north London clubs for his signature.

Playing in Primavera 1 – a youth level competition – for Inter, the Uruguayan scored 14 goals and racked up eight assists in just 25 games in the 2020/21 season, earning the best forward award for the campaign.

Inter had to fight for his signature in January 2020, signing him from Nacional in Uruguay amid interest from a number of European sides, although they have not trusted him in the first team just yet.

They see him as a huge talent with a bright future and do not want to lose him, but the club are in a perilous financial situation and must sell players this summer.

The Serie A champions may prioritise keeping hold of proven first team stars to mount another title challenge next season and spare their exciting young striker, should an appropriate offer come in.

Inter paid around £2m for the striker last year and it is not clear how much they would want for his services this summer.

Satriano is under contract until 2024, so Inter are under no pressure to sell, while Cagliari were reportedly considering a bid of around £4.2m for him, but no move emerged.

Asked about links with a move to the Premier League earlier this year, Satriano was pleased to be talked about in those terms.

‘It is always flattering, yes, it is a sign that I am doing things well and that I have to continue down that path,’ he said.

‘I try to use it as an incentive to keep working and be better every day.

‘The Premier League is the No1 league in the world in terms of competition, that I think all the players want to play, I think all the teams are very good.

‘It is a very competitive league where any team can beat anyone. But for now I am totally focused on Inter and to do the best with them.’
